On Meditation 2
World Premiere

The World Premiere of On Meditation 2 is a follow-up to last year’s opening night film, On Meditation. Helming the series is the award-winning director/executive producer team of Rebecca Dreyfus and Susannah Ludwig, joined by renowned yoga teacher and author Elena Brower, who is, for the first time, lending her talents as an executive producer. Each film, or portrait, focuses on a single individual—and explores how meditation works for them, how it has changed or continues to change them in the deepest or subtlest ways and what it looks like on the most basic physical level. These portraits form a fascinating series that offers a rare glimpse into how meditation has transformed the personal and professional lives of notable figures, including business and hip hop mogul Russell Simmons; motivational speaker, Super Soul Sunday favorite and NBC Today Show expert Gabrielle Bernstein; New York Times bestselling author and Insight Meditation Society co-founder Sharon Salzberg and acclaimed author psychotherapist Mark Epstein. From teachers to celebrities to everyday people, the subjects of On Meditation offer profound personal insights on the ancient rituals and far-reaching modern benefits of meditation practice.
